Process Control and Instrumentation
This course covers the concept and mechanism of chemical process control and related instrumentation. Topics to be discussed are process control, process dynamics, elements of control loop, control modes, feedback control systems, tuning of feedback controllers, frequency response analysis, process instrumentation and advanced process control.Regulations:
- Assignments and Grading
Student should expect to spend 9-13 hours weekly outside of class
Final Exam: 40%
Tests (1 and 2): 20%
Laboratory Report: 20% (NO LATE REPORT WILL BE ACCEPTED)
Homeworks will be assigned regularly throughout the semester.
Homework will typically be due to the beginning of class one week after it is assigned.
NO LATE HOME WORKS WILL BE ACCEPTED
students are encouraged to discuss the homeworks with classmates, however, please write up the solution on your own.
- Tests and Exams
There will be two tests and one final exam.
Test 1 will be given in week 5.
Test 2 will be delivered in week 11.
Final exam will be followed from examination schedule. According to Faculty's regulation, students who attend less than 80% class are not allowed to sit for final examination.
Plagiarism is the use of another person's words or idea without crediting that person. The given assigment is allowed to be discussed with your classmate, however, you must write down the solution or answer or idea by your own words.
